advantage for itself as a retailer as a result of its capacity to act as a

create an unfair competitive advantage if

     (a)  no customer information is disclosed that could be used by the
affiliated retailer for marketing or sales purposes, and the owner and its
affiliated retailer each

               (i)  describe in their compliance plans how the
disclosure is prevented, and

               (ii) have in place appropriate data management and
information access protocols to ensure customer information is not
improperly used.

regulated rate provider is not used by the regulated rate provider for
marketing or sales purposes, and

     (b)  the regulated rate provider includes in its compliance plan,
systems, policies and mechanisms to ensure that no customer information
received in its capacity as a regulated rate provider is used by it for
marketing or sales purposes.

is permitted to be disclosed under this Regulation.


Customer information from employees and others
21   A retailer that seeks or receives customer information from a current

rate provider for sales or marketing purposes seeks or obtains an unfair
competitive advantage, unless this Regulation permits the retailer to have
that customer information.


Joint acquisitions, research and dispositions
22   The following arrangements between an owner and its affiliated
retailer create an unfair competitive advantage for the affiliated retailer

competitive advantage for the affiliated retailer if the transaction is for
other than fair market value.

municipal, provincial or federal government or government agency, the
regulated value is to be considered the fair market value.


Financial transactions
24   A loan, guarantee, security or other financial transaction by an owner
to, or on behalf of, its affiliated retailer on terms more favourable to
the affiliated retailer than the affiliated retailer could obtain on the
open market constitutes an unfair competitive advantage for the affiliated
retailer.


Allocation of benefits and costs by regulated rate provider
25   A regulated rate provider creates an unfair competitive advantage if
the regulated rate provider does not appropriately allocate and  record the
economic benefits or costs between retail electricity services and
electricity services provided under a regulated rate tariff in a manner
that is in accordance with the economic benefits or costs attributable to
each service.


Access to publicly available information

purchase arrangement that applies to that generating unit;

     (c)  "common facilities", in respect of a power plant, means the
facilities identified as associated facilities in Schedule A of the power
purchase arrangement that applies to the generating units at that power
plant;

     (d)  "generating unit" means a generating unit to which a power

unit, means the capacity, expressed in kilowatts, of the new generating
unit, determined in the same manner as the committed capacity of the
existing generating units at the power plant is determined;

     (g)  "new generating unit" means a generating unit that is
constructed after January 1, 2001 and is designed to use common facilities.


Effect of this Regulation
2   Neither the enactment nor the implementation of this Regulation is
considered to be a "change in law" as defined in the power purchase
arrangements.


Contribution to costs of common facilities
3(1)  If the owner of one or more generating units at a power plant
constructs a new generating unit at the power plant, the owner must pay a
share of the costs of the common facilities at the power plant,

     (a)  as specified in subsection (2), and

     (b)  as calculated under subsection (3).

(2)  Each owner referred to in subsection (1) must pay

     (a)  an amount in respect of the common facilities referred to in
Column 4 of the Schedule, and

     (b)  if the new generating unit is designed to use the common
facilities referred to in any or all of Columns 1 to 3 of the Schedule, an
amount in respect of those facilities.

(3)  An amount payable under subsection (2) in respect of a new generating
unit at a power plant is calculated by multiplying

     (a)  the amount shown in the appropriate column of the Schedule
which is opposite to the number of years remaining in the term of the power
purchase arrangement that applies to the existing generating units at the
power plant,

by

     (b)  the maximum continuous rating of the new generating unit.

(4)  To determine the number of years remaining in the term of a power
purchase arrangement for the purpose of subsection (3)(a), the number

     (a)  must be calculated from the in-service date for the new

portion of a year remaining in the term.


Reduced contribution
4(1)  If an owner referred to in section 3(1) considers that an amount

its own facility for the purpose of a new generating unit, the owner may
offer to pay a lesser amount.

(2)  The Balancing Pool may agree to accept a lesser amount in place of an
amount calculated under section 3(3) if, in the opinion of the Balancing
Pool, the lesser amount represents the minimum reduction of the amount
calculated under section 3(3) that is necessary to cause the owner to use a
common facility for the purpose of the new generating unit instead of
constructing its own facility.


Payment of contribution
5(1)  An owner referred to in section 3(1) must make a payment required
under this Regulation

     (a)  to the Balancing Pool, and

     (b)  on or before the in-service date for the new generating unit

may be necessary to enable the owner to make use of the common facilities
at a power plant for the purpose of the new generating unit.


Repeal

     (b)  "business days" means any day other than Saturdays or a holiday
as defined in the Interpretation Act;

     (c)  "credit rating" means a bond rating according to Standard and
Poor's bond rating service or an equivalent bond rating from Dominion Bond
Rating Service or Moody's Investors Service;

     (d)  "owner" means the owner of an electric distribution system;

     (e)  "regulatory authority" means the entity that approves the
owner's distribution tariff under section 102 of the Act.


Content of distribution    tariff
2  A distribution tariff referred to in section 102 of the Act must include

     (a)  the terms and conditions under which the owner proposes to
offer distribution access service, and 

     (b)  a charge for providing system access service that is separate
from the charges for other components of  distribution access service.


Joint tariffs
3(1)  Instead of preparing individual distribution tariffs, two or more
rural electrification associations that own electric distribution systems
may, for the purpose of pooling their own costs of providing distribution
access service, prepare one joint distribution tariff that is based on
those pooled costs.

(2)  A joint distribution tariff referred to in subsection (1) must be
approved by the board of directors of each participating rural
electrification association.


Board approval of distribution tariff
4(1)  EPCOR Distribution Inc. and ENMAX Power Corporation must each apply
for approval of its distribution tariff under section 102 of the Act to the
Board not later than October 1, 2003. 

(2)  The application under subsection (1) may include any distribution
tariff riders approved by the council of the municipality on or before
October 1, 2003 for recovery of deferral accounts in place for costs or
charges incurred before January 1, 2004.

(3)  On receiving an application  under subsection (1), the Board must, not
later than November 30, 2003,

     (a)  approve without change or alteration any distribution tariff
riders referred to in subsection (2), and

     (b)  subject to subsection (4), approve a final distribution tariff
to take effect on January 1, 2004.

(4)  If the Board does not approve a final distribution tariff under
subsection (3)(b), the Board must approve

     (a)  not later than November 30, 2003, an interim distribution
tariff to take effect on January 1, 2004, and

     (b)  not later than October 1, 2004, a final distribution tariff to
take effect on the date specified by the Board.


Board consideration
5   When considering an application for approval of a distribution tariff
under section 102 of the Act the Board must examine the reasonableness of
the owner's billing costs, and other costs the Board considers appropriate
in the prevailing circumstances, without regard to any overall increase in
costs due to the separation of distribution access service and the
provision of electricity services.


Tariff provided for information
6   If the Board is not the regulatory authority who approved an owner's
distribution tariff, the owner must provide a copy of its distribution
tariff to the Board for information before the tariff takes effect.


Appeal to the Board
7(1)  A person who uses, receives or pays for a service provided by a rural
electrification association under its distribution tariff  may appeal to

     (b)  the total of

               (i)  20 days, plus

               (ii) the number of days between consecutive bills issued
by the owner to the retailer, plus

               (iii)     the number of days from the issuance of a bill by
an owner until payment is due from the retailer.

(3)  Subject to section 9, the security must be provided in the form of a
financial deposit, a bond, an irrevocable letter of credit or an
irrevocable guarantee from a person, other than the retailer, with a credit
rating.

(4)  If one or more persons provide an irrevocable guarantee under
subsection (3),

     (a)  the amount of each guarantee must not exceed the amount by
which a retailer would have its security deposit reduced under section 9(3)

retailer under subsection (2), the owner must update the projection under
subsection (2) and, if additional security is required based on the updated
projection, require the retailer to provide the additional security.

(7)  A retailer that is required under subsection (6) to provide additional
security must provide that additional security to the owner within 5
business days of the owner  requiring the additional security.

(8)  An owner must use reasonable diligence to advise a retailer if
additional security is required in accordance with subsection (6).

(9)  All costs incurred by a retailer in providing the security required
under this Regulation are the responsibility of the retailer.


Adjustment for credit rating
9(1)  A retailer may provide its current credit rating to the owner. 

(2)  If a retailer has obtained more than one credit rating, the retailer
must provide the lowest credit rating to the owner under subsection (1).

(3)  A retailer that provides its credit rating must have the security
deposit required under section 8 reduced as follows:

     (a)  by $25 000 000 if the credit rating is AAA- or higher;

     (b)  by $20 000 000 if the credit rating is between AA- and AA+,
inclusive;

     (c)  by $15 000 000 if the credit rating is between A- and A+,
inclusive;

     (d)  by $10 000 000 if the credit rating is between BBB- and BBB+,
inclusive.

(4)  Notwithstanding subsection (3), the security deposit must not be less
than $0.

(5)  A retailer must advise the owner of any downgrading of its credit
rating within 2 business days of the downgrading and must provide any
additional security required as a result of the downgrading within 5
business days of the downgrading.

(6)  A retailer may advise the owner of any upgrading of its credit rating.

(7)  If the amount of security required from a retailer is reduced as a
result of an upgraded credit rating, the owner must return any financial
deposit no longer required to the retailer within 20 business days of being
advised by the retailer of the upgraded credit rating.


Appeal to regulatory authority
10(1)  A retailer may appeal to the owner's regulatory authority the amount
of security required by an owner under this Regulation.

(2)  In determining an appeal commenced pursuant to this section, the
regulatory authority may confirm or vary the amount of the security deposit
to be provided by the retailer to the owner.

(3)  If the regulatory authority varies the amount of the security deposit,
the amount must be consistent with the requirements of sections 8 and 9.


Security to be maintained
11(1)  A retailer that is required to provide security under section 8 must
maintain that amount of security until all obligations of the retailer
under the distribution tariff are satisfied.

(2)  An owner is entitled to retain the security provided by the retailer
until all obligations of the retailer under the distribution tariff are
satisfied.


Default by retailer
12(1)  Subject to subsection (4), if a retailer defaults in its payments
under a distribution tariff, the owner must provide the retailer with a
notice in writing

     (a)  stating that the retailer is in default in its payments to the
owner under the tariff, and

     (b)  advising that the owner may make a claim against the retailer's
security if the arrears are not paid within 3 business days after the date
of the notice.

(2)  If after the expiry of the period set out in subsection (1)(b), the
retailer's arrears remain unpaid, the owner may make a claim against the
retailer's security to recover the arrears.

(3)  If the retailer has provided security in the form of a financial
deposit, the owner may deduct from that deposit the amount of the unpaid
arrears.

(4)  If in the opinion of the owner the giving of notice in accordance with
subsection (1) would impair the owner's ability to make a claim against a
retailer's security or to deduct the unpaid arrears from a retailer's
financial deposit, the owner may make the claim or deduct the unpaid
arrears without notice.

(5)  An owner is entitled to recover as part of its distribution tariff any
costs not covered by a claim against the retailer's security under this
section.

to take effect on the date specified by the Board.

(4)  Despite subsection (3), if the regulated rate tariff contains a
transition rate, the Board must approve a final fixed charge for electric
energy not later than November 30, 2003.


Conditions on transition and flow-through rate
4(1)  If a regulated rate tariff contains a transition rate,

     (a)  the charge for electric energy may not be changed after the
expiry of the period to which it relates;

     (b)  the electric energy charge must be shown in the tariff and on a
customer's bill as

               (i)  a dollar amount per kilowatt hour if the charge is
for the consumption of electric energy, or

               (ii) a dollar amount per unit of demand or per site, if
the charge is not for the consumption of electric energy.

(2)  If a regulated rate tariff contains a flow-through rate, the charge
for electric energy must be determined as follows:

     (a)  when a customer's consumption of electric energy is metered by
an interval meter and billed on the basis of the customer's hourly
consumption of electric energy, the charge is calculated by multiplying

               (i)  the pool price for an hour, 

          by

               (ii) the customer's consumption of electric energy in
that hour;

     (b)  when a customer's hourly consumption is based on a load
profile, the charge must be calculated by multiplying 

               (i)  the weighted average pool price for the billing
period determined in accordance with the following formula:

                    n                                       n
                      CiPi         รถ           Ci
                    i = 1                              i = 1

                    where

                    Ci   means the consumption of electric energy for
the customer's profiling class in hour i determined using the class load
profile set out in the ISO rules for load settlement

                    Pi        means the pool price in hour i

                    n         means the total number of hours in the
customer's billing period

          by
     
               (ii) the customer's consumption of electric energy for
the billing period;

     (c)  the calculation under clause (b) must be determined using
initial daily settlement data as determined by ISO rules for load
settlement, or a reasonable proxy if the data is not available due to
billing cycle timing;

     (d)  the charge for electric energy may include a reasonable
allocation to eligible customers of

               (i)  charges arising from ISO rules for load settlement,
including charges related to electric distribution system losses,
unaccounted-for energy and retailer adjustment to market, and

               (ii) fees charged by the Independent System Operator for
the exchange of electric energy through the power pool;

     (e)  the charge for electric energy may include a refund or charge
to reconcile the variance between the owner's revenue from eligible
customers related to electric energy consumption in a billing period and
the owner's cost of purchasing electric energy during that billing period
arising from

               (i)  differences in volumes of electric energy reported
in initial daily settlement data and interim and final reconciliation
settlement provided for in the ISO rules for load settlement,

               (ii) differences between the customer's actual billed
consumption and consumption based on the interim and final reconciliation
settlement provided for in the ISO rules for load settlement, and

               (iii)     revisions to the pool price determined by the
Independent System Operator.

(3)  If the regulated rate tariff contains a flow-through rate, the owner
must not, either in the tariff or by other means,

     (a)  collect fees related to the entry to, or exit from, the tariff,
or

     (b)  require notice periods greater than 30 days for entry to, or
exit from, the tariff.

(4)  If the regulated rate tariff contains a flow-through rate, the owner
must, in a manner and form readily accessible to the public,

     (a)  as soon as practicable following the end of a billing period,
publish for that period the flow-through rate for each profiling class,
determined under the formula described in subsection (2)(b), and

     (b)  keep that information readily accessible to the public for at
least 12 months following the date of publication.


Board consideration
5   When considering an application for approval of a regulated rate tariff
under section 103 of the Act, the Board must

     (a)  have regard for the principle that a regulated rate tariff must
provide the owner with a reasonable opportunity to recover the prudent
costs and expenses incurred by the owner and a reasonable return, and

     (b)  examine the reasonableness of the owner's billing costs and
other costs the Board considers appropriate in the prevailing
circumstances, without regard to any overall increase in costs due to the
separation of distribution access service and the provision of electricity
services.


Copies of REA and municipal tariffs given to Board
6   The owner must provide a copy of its regulated rate tariff to the
Board, for information, before the tariff takes effect, if the Board is not
the owner's regulatory authority.


Options for eligible customers
7   Each owner must make available to eligible customers in the owner's
service area the option of purchasing electricity services in accordance
with the terms and conditions of the owner's regulated rate tariff instead
of purchasing electricity services from a retailer.


Information on bills to customers
8   The owner must show on every bill sent to a customer at least the
following information, showing separately:

     (a)  the electric energy charge;

     (b)  the administrative charge, which may include a billing charge,
as a dollar amount for each period specified in the bill;

     (c)  the delivery charge for distribution access service and system
access service separately as either

               (i)  a distribution charge and transmission charge, or 

               (ii) a fixed delivery charge and variable delivery
charge;

     (d)  the customer's consumption of electric energy on which the
charge referred to in clause (a) is based;

     (e)  rate riders, if applicable;

     (f)  if applicable, shown under the heading "local access fee" any
amount levied under section 45 of the Municipal Government Act, or Schedule
1, section 21 of the Metis Settlements Act, or by bylaw under the Indian
Act (Canada).  


Basis of charges
9(1)  Effective July 1, 2004, for regulated rate customers, 

     (a)  both the electric energy charge and the delivery charge to
customers in a billing period must be based on common consumption data for
that billing period, and

     (b)  at sites where electric energy consumption is metered, at least
twice each calendar year the charge for electric energy for a billing
period must be based on an actual meter reading.

(2)  An owner is not entitled to collect from a customer any amount
undercharged as a result of an incorrect meter reading, incorrect rate
calculation, clerical error or other billing error that is made more than
12 months before the date of the bill.

(3)  If a customer is overcharged, the owner must refund the customer the
amount overcharged as soon as practicable after the error is discovered.


Exemption from financial security requirements
10   An owner is exempt from the requirement to provide financial security,
as determined under the ISO rules, in respect of the electric energy
acquired by the owner to meet its obligations under its regulated rate
tariff.
